Why Bayley misses NXT


"I miss everything. It's just bitter sweet. I'm really happy to be with WWE but it was a family back there. The family that I grew up with. It has a different feel to the crowd. We all grew together and we all built NXT together. It wasn't just the fans or it wasn't just the roster. It was all of us putting together, their giving their heart and soul when cheering and we were giving our heart and soul when we were performing in the ring. So this together made magic and it displayed on TV so that people at home could feel that. I just miss everything. NXT is so special."

From a recent interview WWE uploaded to its YouTube. She's doing just fine on the main roster so far, but by the time she left NXT she was a big fish in a little pond. It's only natural to miss out on that, not to mention the journey she took to get to be that big fish.

Good news, Miami Dolphins fans, Big Show thinks the team will 'do fantastic' this year


"I think the Dolphins are going to do very well. I'm never one to jinx anybody's season or performances, but I think the new coach has the right energy and right positive attitude and you can see just from watching this practice a little bit that I've been around. I was hyped on the sidelines and I'm an old man. That energy is coming down from the coach all the way down to the players. You're hyped in practice, you're working hard, and you're playing hard. That translates to wins. I would definitely say the Dolphins are going to do fantastic."

From The big man became a Dolphins fan when he moved to the area, so his opinion has been compromised. Miami is probably not going to be "fantastic" this year, but maybe!



"She’s truly the love of my life, and she deserves to be treated as such. Because we’re in the same industry, she truly understands that there will be fans that are looking for a different sort of admiration, but it takes two to be disrespectful, and I would like to think that in most every encounter, I try to treat her with as much respect as I can. And I’m not perfect. I eff up a lot, but that always goes through my head, to try to treat her with respect."

William Faulkner gives Nobel Literature Prize speech aimed at directly the WWE


William Faulkner gives Nobel Literature Prize speech aimed at directly the WWE. "[Man] (Vince, probably) must learn them again. He must teach himself that the basest of all things is to be afraid; and, teaching himself that, forget it forever, leaving no room in his workshop for anything but the old verities and truths of the heart, the old universal truths lacking which any story is ephemeral and doomed- love and honor and pity and pride and compassion and sacrifice. Until he does so, he labors under a curse. He writes not of love but of lust, of defeats in which nobody loses anything of value, of victories without hope and, worst of all, without pity or compassion. His griefs grieve on no universal bones, leaving no scars. He writes not of the heart, but of the glands." Emphasis mine.

William Faulkner, acceptance speech for the Nobel Prize in Literature, originally delivered December 10th, 1950 in Stockholm, Sweden.

Bo Dallas on possibly working with Bray Wyatt


"Oh, absolutely (it's a dream to one day be tag champions or feud like Bret and Owen Hart). Anything is possible. We grew up as brothers dreaming about the day we would become tag team champions. Who knows? Who knows what's going to happen?"

MLW statement on Jim Cornette / Islamophobia


Following the comments made on the Jim Cornette Experience, we here at MLW felt it was important to clarify the position of MLW Radio: Like every podcast, the views, opinions and positions expressed by Jim Cornette are his alone, and do not reflect the views, opinions or positions of MLW or anyone involved with the podcasts. We strongly support freedom of speech but equally, tolerance and acceptance of all faiths, ethnicity, race, sexual preference or otherwise. There are many at MLW Radio who have friends that are Muslim and have seen the hardships they’ve had to endure as a result of Islamophobia. It is our goal to find peace in this through understanding and acceptance of others and we will work to do so in this case.

I would like to publicly thank MLW Radio for clarifying this matter swiftly and for the stance they've taken on this issue.

Daniel Bryan trying to find compromise with WWE


"Because of my history with concussions, the WWE medical doctor wouldn't clear me. We're in the process of trying to figure out some compromise. They keep sending me to do more tests, brain MRIs, brain EGs and all my tests have come back great to the point where my brain is better than someone my age with no concussion.""
